Fairlie Watermain Renewal Project

The fourth watermain renewal project, for Fairlie, has been awarded by Mackenzie District Council to Rooney Earthmoving Ltd.

This is the final package of work out of four watermain renewal packages allocated to the Mackenzie District, as part of 7 million dollars of funding to stimulate the local economy following economic impacts caused by Covid-19.

The project work is to replace existing watermains and submains that are at the end of their service life, with new polyethylene pipes.

Rooney Earthmoving Ltd are establishing their operations on site on 14 March, with the work continuing to the end of June 2022.

The main project works will take place on the following streets within the Fairlie township - Mt Cook Road, Main Street, and Allandale Road. The Allandale Road work further involves the replacement of a steel pipe attached to the underside of Allandale Bridge.

There will be a letter drop prior to the project commencing, advising residents and businesses of the watermain work, and for any planned disruptions to service.
